Hefei No.45 Middle School Fu Rong CampusHefei, China
Hefei No.45 Middle School Fu Rong Campus is located at the southwest corner of Raycom City, Economic Development Zone of Hefei, comprising 42 classrooms and various teaching facilities.
Different from conventional examination-oriented education mode, the design team hopes to bring in more interaction and communication so that students can enjoy the real essence of school life. An interactive central spine has been introduced which contains not only circulation space but a lot of multifunction rooms and gathering space, providing opportunities for students to exchange, communicate and explore not only among themselves and teachers, but also between the school and the students’ families.
The concept of green is also considered as a key element in the design. Besides sustainable building design and technologies, student farms and mini meteorological stations would enhance students’ awareness of environmental protection through learning and participation.
